Rock's problem is that he plays himself in every role. He is surprisingly good though

Batista is awesme

I'm not surprised by wrestlers being excellent actors. The discipline to maintain a stellar physique, athleticism and act in Wrestling then applied to another profession which requires similar hard work, focus, and determination.

I love the"so we're all agreed". All the Thor fans are agreed that it validates what they want and Superman fans  (like me) are not sold.

Both Superman and Thor got DBZ power-ups in their last film outings and we're about where the comics are in terms of the two top-tier heroes from both universes, at least until Avengers 4 when Thior goes back to an Iron Man worthy foe and Brie Larson craps on everyone; and top feats are as good as space cheese and it comes down to how it really should go

Superman is clearly physically over Thor while Thor is a true warrior and has a weapon capable of really harming Superman

If Superman pays close attention to the weapon and uses his physicality, he should win pretty easily. If it's Superman being stupid, he will get hurt by Storm breaker

IMHO this version of Superman has already been through a whole lot, understands what it means to be outmatched by experienced warriors and will use his power and cunning more quickly than even the comic version. he had to fight Zod on his first day out when he was essentially Clark Kent wearing the Superman suit, went on to face Kryptonite, Doomsday and then fought Steppenwolf - who despite being a CGI abomination was meant to be immensely formidable

This Superman won't try to take an axe to the chest and since he opens with heat vision as an attack often, he'll see Thor block that ala how he blocked Surtur's fire blast, and quickly move to use his other powers and advantages to a relatively easy win

Thor didn't look all-powerful in Ragnarok - as awesome as the movie was - he was overwhelmed by far too many opponents in that film to say otherwise. In Infinity War we really see how much of a difference a weapon makes to his formidability as he outright states that facing Thanos without a weapon is suicide - and I seriously doubt Superman would have no chance (let's not debate the winner) in a physical match with Thanos .

In A4 I'm sure Hulk will shine as the physical beast he is and Cap Marvel will outshine everyone while Thr is played down and he goes back to his top-tier rivalry with Hulk - it's a lot like classic marvel which is cool.

This is Supermans fight to lose and given that this is Snyder's Superman I doubt he will be outfought

Superman got tagged by non-super speeders when he was no-selling people. He effortlessly avoided Cyborg's blast and when he decided to simply overpower Steppenwolf he simply made him look foolish. Thor's only way to win is if Supes decides to take Stormbreaker to the chest - this Superman is a little smarter, he's been hurt before.

S man wins handily

The anthology film people want is Obi-Wan. If they milk the life out of characters like Yoda, it's a short lifespan from here on out. The only salvageable thing from the new trilogy is to somehow see a flashback of Luke doing something awesome or somehow doing justice or wrapping up the original trilogy, prequels and other arcs with one fell swoop and then moving on to the future or past

The whole trilogy has been dedicated to pissing on the corpses of the OT characters while setting up ideas no one really cares about - aka the unknown regions aka we should care about Snoke because he was around for 10 minutes of screen time. I have no idea how a film like that will gain traction unless.......

Knights of the Old Republic while setting up interesting stories about the unknown regions.

and please show Luke doing something cool while Mark Hamill is still healthy enough to do the part and willing. I wouldn't mind seeing another boss Vader moment.

In a nutshell, the new trilogy has committed so many mistakes in character development while not taking advantage of the old guard that it's just awful writing

Why should I care about Kylo ren if he's already been beaten by Rey, not even come close to Snoke and is now the leader of the First Order? How is he really a credible threat?

What actually character development has Rey undergone? She is far more of a Mary Sue than Luke ever was - she's had no challenges. Yoda's whole point t Luke was that the Dark Side is quicker and easier but that the two sides measured up - what does that mean now that Rey has acquired all of this power with no effort or patience whatsoever?

The whole trilogy feels Disneyified - it needs help

Wher would you place Ngannou's power?

Shaver's is somewhere between "off the charts" and "is his fist a ham hock...is that even human??"

Ngannou broke the punch-meter and looked like he could decapitate Miocic

Thor hasn't gotten that much of a boost, he's just gotten far awesome movies. He has no chance whatsoever - nor does anyone at all minus Thanos with IG gauntlets, against a friggin Celestial.

Ego could snap his fingers and shit off the Led Zeppelin music

this is a non-fight

I know Thor was hella awesome in the film but this is still a close fight. I think Thor wins this one but not easily. DC's characters have been consistently more powerful - Remy Lupus makes it a fight

Thanos is horrible for battle board debates. That scene was written to show how badass Thanos was and then he goes on to be troubled by characters Hulk would smash

To be perfectly fair I thought Hulk was giving him a rough fight until the tide turned, I thought the beatdown was going to be more one-sided. I don't see anyone at Marvel with the exception of Dr. Strange Dues Ex Machina pulling a portal out of his ass  that's a physical match for movie Superman. Strange isn't even a real physical opponent either

He beat Steppenwold without even breaking a sweat and being intelligent? He beats Thor by the potential differential you cited

If they somehow store Luke's character I'm in. Gratuitously nerfing Luke just to shoehorn in a new franchise which they did nothing to prepare for has given us Cantobight, a lot of characters we don't care about, a Disneyfied SW U which resembles nothing of the universe we want

Here's what could work

Obi-Wan anthology film - no one cares about Solo, EVERYONE wants to see Obi Wan and Luke before Rian Johnson

KOTOR series - set it thousands of years before the OT and make it GoT in space with plenty of room to go into the outer rims and see what works while exploring interesting things that can be done with lost knowledge of th Jedi and Sith

Kind of a weird matchup.

On a normal day, it's a very good fight and I'd give it about even odds. WW was hella powerful in her solo flick

Thor at films end had lost his people, father, sister, best friend and watched his enemy kill his brother in front of him, traveled to the edge of the universe to forge a weapon capable of stopping the man who executed everything he loved and knew

Thor versus Ares is Thor versus random God who has troublesome powers, He has the powers and abilities to win but if he's less motivated it wouldn't be as easy. WW didn't win as easily until she lost Steve Trevor. Ares was done a disservice

Ebony Maw and Magneto would be awesome. Magneto has his tk limited to metals but Maw was sincerely badass and would look awesome versus Magneto

The rest are weak sauce so Thanos and crew on a stomp

Thanos had one uber physical showing which was possibly mitigated by the power gem vs Hulk for the job to the bad guy scene

Considering that he had the power gem if Hulk was still able to throw down, that doesn't reflect well on Thanos

Afterward, the following characters gave him a hard time physically

Iron Man (drew blood)
Cap (just held him for a sec but still)
Drax (went from being transformed into ribbons to hurting him)

Mantis - really messed him up

Dr Strange

In short, Thanos was able to transform people into abstract art when he used the reality gem and suddenly he was physically vulnerable enough for all of the aforementioned to either challenge him or directly take him on.

Unless he uses the gauntlet like he did when he was directly motivated to do so he physically looked like he was lucky that both Hela and Odin weren't around by the movie's beginning.

DCEU movie Superman is on another level physically than these characters. I'm sure Dr.Stranghe would give him the same Deus Ex Machina problems any mage would, but otherwise, he is a step above. So long as he is careful not to take Stormbreaker or Mjolnir (whichever weapon Thor has) He is going to overwhelm Thor

As loathe as I am to even touch on the name of the CGI monstrosity, DCEU Superman didn't try to take Steppenwolf's axe or punches, he used his speed and freeze breathe to take out the weapons and then his strength to finish the fight. This Supes is a bit smarter. He even fights Doomsday by taking advantage of his flight and speed.

He's not going to take a gofdy weapon to the chest. Zod might, bt not Superman

The fact that Stipe is such an exceptional boxer and a very composed fighter helps. He beat Ngannous who had Ernie Shavers like power even though he was at risk of decapitation by right cross at any time and still emerged unscathed. Stipe is a top 5 heavy
